Meet the owner and artist, Amanda Klein!
Amanda was born in Montgomery and went to Hayden High School. Besides drawing and painting, Amanda loves baking and reading, but loves the outdoors even more. When she has the time, you can find her hiking, camping, and stalking wild animals just to catch a glimpse of them. She loves the mountains and the beach but would likely pick mountains if you made her choose. Amanda once ran a 50-mile race through the woods and was disappointed that she didn’t see any bears along the way. She loves all kinds of books and podcasts but especially biographies, true crime, self-help, and business. For fun, you can find her rewatching Schitt’s Creek, Seinfeld, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Music is her caffeine and she loves Coldplay, 90s Country, Yoga music for painting, Head & the Heart, The Chicks, and Pink. She has a playlist that she listens to every day on the way to work that gets her in the right mindset for the day. She is passionate about helping others and has established partnerships with both SafeHouse of Shelby County and The Arc of Shelby County.
Amanda lives in Hoover with her husband Drew, their son, Caedon, and their dog, Maggie. Her favorite flower to paint is the Magnolia and her favorite animal is (duh) a bear.
Meet our Operations Manager, Tori!
Tori is originally from Massachusetts but moved to Mobile for a volleyball scholarship while still in high school. She later studied at the University of Alabama and graduated with a degree in History. Tori and Amanda met in 2020 at their neighborhood “Covid Cocktail Happy Hour” where people from their neighborhood started getting together in their cul-de-sac every Friday (and they still do!). Tori loves going to the beach, all things Hamilton, watching football (both college and pro), 2000’s hip-hop, pizza, and family. She’s a reality TV and documentary junkie and hopes to one day see Mount Everest.
Tori lives in Hoover with her husband Paul, and her two children - Sydney, age 10 and Logan, age 7. They share their home with 2 dogs (Taco and Lily), 1 bearded dragon (Drago), and 1 box turtle (Simon). Her favorite Amanda Klein artwork is the Honey Bee, even though she hates them IRL (along with most other insects).
Meet our Shipping Coordinator and Content Writer, April!
April is originally from Pennsylvania and graduated with a Liberal Arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University. April and Amanda met in 2013 when they both worked for Whole Foods Market in Mountain Brook, Alabama. April always felt that their paths would cross again one day and eventually they did when April jumped at the chance to work alongside Amanda to support her small business. April loves wine, travel (especially Disney!), listening to audiobooks (mostly mysteries and thrillers), and crafting. Her favorite TV show is Bob’s Burgers which she watches every night while making dinner for her family.
April lives in Alabaster with her husband Eric, their daughter Sophie, their dog Rex, and their two cats - Snowbell and Mister Bonbon. April’s favorite Amanda Klein artwork is the cat, as she someday plans to be a crazy cat lady.
